so right on you are ... great old tune, done fine by Jer on countless occasions. I think the lyrics that did it for me:

"If ever I return pretty Peggy-O,
if ever I return pretty Peggy-O
If ever I return your cities I will burn
Destroy all the ladies in the area-O."

In other words, either marry me wench, or ...

btw, got your e-mail upon my return from the day's toil. But first had to meet up with the nephew who was clamoring for my attention. I mean, what is it with nine-year-olds? (trust me, i was never like that ...)

[yeah, right :p]

If you guys want something to really relax to, 6/17/75 is the most mellow peggy o Ive ever heard, and it also has two or 3 solos

Wow! Good call casper. And yer right, a damn mellow Peggy-o if ever i've heard one. Actually had the show on my drive, but hadn't given it a listen. Let me add too that the version here on the archive is a pretty decent AUD for the period. So very cool and thanks for the tip.

[think i'm coming up on first solo now ...]

Oh yeah, sweet!

Whew, thought I was different, glad there are other Peggy-O fans out there. Peggy-O is one of my favorite tunes, provides a real nice change of pace. I've got a copy of one, don't know when its from, or where it came from. Only help file name is "Peggy-O (AWESOME!!)" which goes without saying. Been trying to chase it down for years, with no luck. Enjoying the suggestions here, but alas, not a match with my copy of Peggy.

you are not different my friend - PeggyO is one of my alltime favorite tunes the Dead played. very few are bad, some are phenomenal. just a beautiful old traditional "folk" song - or "southern folk" song - however you want to look at it. That song just "sends"me - i go to a different and happy place.
